Lint Hotel Koln
Ranked #69 of 261 Hotels in Cologne
Reviewed April 17, 2007

I spent a lovely weekend in Köln during which I stayed in the Lint hotel. It is very well situated, less than ten minutes walking from the Cathedral and just a few steps from the romanesque church of Gross St. Martin (superb as a matter of fact).

The room was clean, although not too big, with a balcony to Gross St.
Martin platz, which is a little and quiet square,. The breakfast was included in the 129 euros the room costed me and my wife and it was really pleasant since it was warm and the place where you take the breakfast was open to the Square and you could see Gross St. Martin (I just missed some croissants in the breakfast).

And Köln is OK to visit, with a magnificent Gothic cathedral and some beautiful romanesque churches, lot of shopping, and students
"fiesta".

First, the pros: Ideally situated, clean and modern. It is a few minute stroll to the Cathedral Dom / metro. You can also walk to all the main museums within minutes. There are plenty of nightlife and dining options right outside your door. It is in the Aldstadt (old town) and is in a pedestrian-only zone, so it really is quaintly situated. There is a taxi stand a mere block away. All in all, the price is very fair for what you get. The breakfast was fresh and satisfying - an array of meats, cheeses, bread and cereal.

In fairness, three of the four staff we encountered were helpful and kind. However, the fourth, a young man, really left a sour taste in our mouths. We arrived during Karnivale so the streets were overflowing with people. Our first night, we asked where we could get dinner and he said it's Karnivale, shrugged and said, "Good luck." We took it in stride - no big deal - and found an Italian restaurant half a block away. What was a huge deal was the morning we left when, again, due to the festivities, taxis were not operating at the stand per usual. We spoke with the front desk the night before at which point we were assured they would call a cab for us to be there for our international departure the next day. 8 AM the next day the breakfast was not set up (it "started" at 7:15 AM). We inquired about the cab, at which point he shrugged again. We asked him to call. He put the phone to his ear, looked outside, and told us there was no taxi. Not sure if he even called - he just walked off. My friend and I were baffled and flustered and began running around the streets with our luggage searching for a way to the airport. Thanks! With service like that, if I'm ever in Cologne I will stay somewhere else.

A great little hotel, clean and modern and located very centrally. Just a 5 - 10 minute walk to the main train station / cathedral and the helpful and friendly staff will e-mail you directions. Also very near to the two best Christmas markets, and not far to the boat and medieval markets (not as good as the Cathedral and Alter Markt markets). Also located to lots of nice beer houses where you can find plenty of filling and tasty meals!
The hotel provides a very good breakfast, as much as you can eat - bread, rolls, cereal, jams etc, cheese and ham, fruit, eggs and some kind of fruit muesli-thing (quite tasty).
The hotel is generally pretty quiet although there are a couple of pubs which back onto it and there can be a bit of noise from them - but I wouldn't let that put you off.
All in all, this is a great hotel at a very reasonable price and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it - or to stay there again.
If you're going for the Christmas markets consider making a day trip to Bonn which is a lovely little town and the markets there are a bit nicer!

This small, boutique hotel in the heart of Cologne was lovely. The staff is very friendly, the breakfast was very good (and included) and the location is amazing. Right in the heart of the old town of Cologne, a short walk to the Rhine. The rooms are a good size, clean and modern. They don't supply toiletries, so make sure you bring soap, etc. The front faces a beautiful cobblestone street and the back faces a quiet courtyard with a church. No complaints about the Lint. Recommend.

This was an excellent hotel. This very clean, modern hotel was located in the pedestrian only section a very short walk away from the Rhine. The staff was friendly, helpful, and gave us a discount on our stay when we called directly, planning our trip before we left. We were able to walk directly to and from the train station, and we would definitely recommend this to others and plan to stay here again when we decide to visit again.

My girlfriend found a great deal on ebay.de for the Lint Hotel. The staff all spoke english and was friendly, courteous and professional. However, the room was very small but clean and modern. The most negative part about the hotel is the lack of close by parking due to the hotel being located in the “fussgaengerstrasse”. This is an area just for pedestrians. So we had to park 2 kilometers away. Overall, it is a very nice hotel that we would recommend those going to Colonge to stay at.

We stayed when the Pope came to Koln (not intentionally - we were just passing through) and it was a great place to stay. Very close to all the fun things in Koln and on a reasonably quiet side street. The rooms are small to US visitors but in line with our expectations for Europe. For the three of us (two adults and a child) it was fine. The showers were good and hot, and the place is very clean and modern. We didn't have time to visit the restaurant, but it looked good.

It was great being right above the square next to St. Martin's church and being close to the sights around Koln. This is a great place in an ideal location with modern facilities - I'd go there again in a heartbeat.
